On Sunday night, the 15th annual BET Awards brought out all of entertainment's biggest names. Airing live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, the event featured musical performances from a range of artists, spotlighted community heroes and honored achievements in the music, film, and sports. The three hour show's highlights included Sean "Diddy" Combs performing in a Bad Boy reunion (and taking a nasty fall on-stage), Rihanna duct taping Floyd Mayweather's mouth, and the antics of hosts Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson.
